My Orange Overdrive 120 will blow the 5A SLO blow fuse every time I turn it on? Does anyone know what component (transformer?...bad caps?...) could be causing this?

It took me 10 years to find this amp. I used it once at practice at POOF! Dead! Please help me fix this.

Also, where can I get replacement parts a la transformers, etc for this head preferably in the US?

Whatever you do, do NOT bypass the fuse because it blows. I'd have the amp checked, especially poweramp and power tubes.

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement Power Transformer for my Overdrive 120 and more importantly how to get one to the East Coast quickly?

I've found places that will do the repair but not one that can or will actually sell the parts.

Thanks for any info in advance.

Maybe Plexi Palace? http://www.plexipalace.com/
Or call the Orange USA office. They could maybe help.

I've listed some replacement transformer manufacturers at
http://www.geocities.com/geertjacobs/orange_mods.htm

Most of them were mentioned in a thread at www.ampage.org . Maybe the thread is still there (they erase there threads after some time).
